View Full Version : VisionPro programming question
07-15-2005, 09:49 AM
I have a question about the VisionPro thermostat. I've searched but can't find an answer so here goes.
When I go camping over the weekend, I like to hold my temps higher for X days. I know the VisionPro does it but how does it determine what a day is?
Let say this is the program:
Wake - 8:00am - 78
Leave - 12:00pm - 85
Return - 4:00pm - 78
Sleep - 11:00pm - 82
Now if I am leaving town and at 1 pm on friday I tell it to hold for 2 days, when will the program start running again?

On the top it should display the current day(this is applied in the installer codes). The program will start again Sunday at 1 pm. Hopefully you have the book that came with the stat. It's a must have. Lot's of codes.....

Thanks smokin68. That's what I thought it should do but I didn't think it was. I'll try it again this weekend.
I'm not sure if I have the book that came with the stat. It was a new house and had 2 of the stats. I love them. Do you know if it is available for download?

I found a website recently that sells thermostats. The really great thing is that they also have the operations manuals in pdf form. The link is:
When you get to this page, then click on your brand (Honeywell). It will go to a page with all of the Honeywell thermostats they offer. Next find your model and click on "More Information". This will bring you to a detailed description of the particular model. Near the top, there will be another "More Information" section which has a tab for "Owner's Manual" which is a link for the pdf file. Hopefully, it will have your model. I found this site easier to use than the Honeywell site.

I'd check the honeywell site and look for a way to contact them...they'll probably send you the books. Good luck.
That above link does have a manuel, I just couldn't open it,but it might be the right one.

I own VisionPro8320
When you press hold twice, system asks for how many days to hold. Days accounted by 24 hour period.
Check demo url

Max hold I belive is 365 days.
If you come yearly, just click cancel.... And it will resume original program.
Why is this even an issue?????

after opening that file on the above link, I can tell you that the VisionPro stats I deal with have alot more codes than are listed there in that pdf file.

I would say it would start off on it's morning program..
I just set mine A/C and forget it. No need to do the temp changes.

Well I'm back from my weekend of camping and I thought I would post what I found out on my holding of the program.
I left around 1 pm on Friday and told it to hold for 2 days. I got home on Sundat around 2 pm and the A/C had not kicked on. I looked at the thermostat and it said it was held until 6pm. That is my actual return time for my programs.
Here is what I think is happening. I'll use my original question times to explain. When you say to hold for x number of days, the hold will end at the time of day you begin but it will not actually kick in the program until the next program time. In my original question, I was holding the temperature starting for 2 days at 1pm. So at 1pm, the day hold ends but it must wait until the next program time of 4pm to change the temperature.
I hope this makes sense.
Thanks for all of your help. I now know my thermostats better.

I believe this trick might work, but haven't had time to verify it:
Push up or down on the current temp, which should give you a temporary hold... set the time, then hit hold twice to give you the # of days. I'm under the impression that this might give you the set back based on the time you set rather than program period...but I could easily be wrong. Just haven't had time to play with the stat much.

I had thought about trying that too after I came back and observed what happened. I will check it out.

Funny thing is, The previous model (Chronotherm IV) Does eexactly what you want. In addition to holding for the number of days desired it will them prompt you for what "period" you want it to go back on. Hence you could hold for two days Leave Monday return Wed and choose Wake, Leave, Return or Sleep as your starting period. I too have yet to figure if the VisionPro can do this. Steven
